Two years after joining NBC from Univision, Cesar Conde has been promoted to the newly created position of chairman of the NBCUniversal International Group.
Conde will now oversee the Telemundo network and local stations, NBC Universo Cable Network, and NBC Deportes.
“Telemundo is one of the fastest growing parts of our company and an important area of focus for us,” said NBCU CEO Steve Burke. “I am confident that Cesar’s deep knowledge of the business and keen understanding of the changing marketplace make him the right leader to help build on its strong momentum.”
Joe Uva, who had been chairman of NBC Hispanic Enterprises, will transition into an advisory role.
“Joe’s leadership has helped to propel Telemundo’s record growth,” added Burke. “A couple of months ago Joe and I began talking about his successor and we agreed that Cesar was the perfect choice. Cesar and I have asked Joe to stay on as Senior Advisor for the next several months to help with the transition and the move of NBC Deportes to Stamford.” NBC Deportes is currently housed at Telemundo HQ in Hialeah, FL.
Uva and Conde previously worked together at Univision where Uva was CEO from 2007-2011, and Conde was president, from 2009-2013. Former longtime NBCer, Randy Falco, succeeded Uva as chairman of Univision in 2011.
